Kid Cudi Fires Back at Drake; Lupe Fiasco Attacks Cudi


In this entirely new era of hip hop beef, where trigger fingers have turned to twitter fingers, and the only shots fired are words sometimes limited to only 140 characters, we have breaking news on this Drake/Kid Cudi scenario.

You probably remember, probably because it was just last week, when Drake fired off this lyric from the track entitled “Two Birds, One Stone,” attacking both Kid Cudi and Pusha T, which was broadcasted on OVO Radio:

“You were the man on the moon, now you go through your phases,
Life of the angry and famous,
Rap like I know I’m the greatest and give you the tropical flavors,
Still never been on hiatus,
You stay xan and perked up so when reality set in you don’t gotta face it.”

Cudi may be in rehab, but the kid takes no shots kindly, especially ones directly related to his mental health. No one has really had much nice to say about Drake’s remarks, as the world is sensitive to the issues surrounding Kid Cudi’s recent proclamation and emotional outpour to his fans, with regard to his ongoing battle with depression and anxiety. There is nothing lyrical or pretty about suicidal tendencies, and many think Drizzy should have thought twice before saying such not nice things.

In related news, Lupe Fiasco went on a recent rant on the inter webs, also taking up beef with an absent Kid Cudi. His tweets can be seen in this article on HypeBeast, or by visiting the artist’s Twitter account.

Even if as lyrics or part of a song, not meant to be completely taken literally, popular believe is that Drake went to far on this one. The sentiments surrounding Lupe’s fiasco of a twitter rant warrants a similar reaction.

Word reached Cudders in rehab, and he fired back at Drake (Lupe might as well have been addressed here also):

The kid also tweeted these uplifting words:

Twitter seems to be the only way rappers know how to brawl these days, but Cudder’s words cut deeply into the hearts of all those cheering him on, and probably those who aren’t. Mental health matters are nothing but of the utmost seriousness. Every human being, famous or not, should tread lightly and with sensitivity when addressing these very serious issues.

All other things aside, none of these dudes will ever take to the streets where beefs used to be settled. Maybe Suge Knight should step in and let these rappers know what’s really good.
